Anp
I met a lady in a lift two days ago who ran into CP Mary at the yacht club where this race was held - in the ladies public toilets no less. (We were both suprised a private facility wasn't available to her.) CP Mary was combing her hair, and the lady I just met asked her "How did you go?". CP Mary told her she "won and that meant she won the series". I was in my flat above the yatch club at the time of the race and did look out while they were in that area of the harbour. They was a moment when Mary's yacht turned close by Frederick's - saw that and then it was on the news that night. Bit dramatic. Anyway, this lady is still talking about her brush with royalty - and I don't blame her - I should have got myself down there and seen them drive in and out. (Silly me.)

Mary and Frederik, with Australian family and friends, did the West Coast Wilderness Railway on this visit back to Tasmania.

Some photos I took when I had my camera and was at Observatory Hill. (Last year I think - sunshine anyway.)
